COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine. Apricot in color, Broo Doo’s nose has dominant orange, pine sap and floral notes, balanced by a glazed nut and toffee malt body. This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love. October release.

who-we. I know theres a better way to spell that,but you get the picture. Nose of huge and delicous hop. Fantastic citrus with a nice but slight malt backbone. One of my favorite beers of the year for sure. Wish I had more. Might have to go get more.

Wow - couldn’t believe my eyes when I found five bottles (2007)... bought them all. Pours dark orange, nice head, lots of lacing on the glass. Hops would be the key word, very fresh, citrus (grapefruit or pomelo), pine, resin. Would be interesting to compare with Dreadnaught in a taste-off. Awesome beer, long live 3F.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Pours a slightly hazy, apricot orange with a small white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Huge hop aroma...pine needles, grapefruit, orange, lemon zest, and a tiny hint of malt. The flavor is sweet at first, but quickly turns bitter and hoppy, with a robust earthyness. There is a lot of pine and fruit in the flavor as well. Although this seems to be balanced fairly well, the taste of the malt is well hidden. Nice finish with just the right amount of I.B.U.s. This is all about the hops. Medium bodied with light but sharp carbonation. Wish this stayed this fresh all year.

Tap. Deep golden with one finger head. Sweet and fruity. Medium hops with very light bitterness. Awesome.

AMber/orange in color with a small creamy white head. The aroma is HUGE! citrus grapefruit,pineapple orange peach and pear come through. I smelled this beer for a good 5 minutes before the first sip. While it started out hoppy with the same flvors as aromas, it was not overly bitter. A nice carmelly and malty flavor helps to balance the hoppiness. With all the attention Dreadnaught gets, BrooDoo will give it a run for its money. Another great beer brewed by the Floyds.

Phenomenal effort! Deep rich amber in color. Huge floral/grapefruit nose. Rich malty flavor. Much smoother than Dreadnaught, but similar hop profile. Easy drinking. A real treat. Finish is smooth and slightly bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 On tap at FFF brewpub. This was just tapped, as it wasn’t even on the beerlist yet. It was amazingly strong, both in flavor and aroma. It had a great "striking" feature to it, where it punched your palate hard and fast, but then lingered on softly afterwards. Full of bright citrus; grapefruit and orange zest, and had a wonderful complexity and balance. Bought a 22 ouncer afterwards for later that day. Bomber: Just had the bomber, and it was even better than I remember at the brewpub on tap. It had intense fresh hop aromas, that I love, which had a "green" element to it...like in most traditional harvest ales. It was so deliciously strong with amazing flavor, intensity, complexity, and bitterness. What a great beer. One of the best ales FFF has. I wish it was more available.

Intense hop aroma and flavor that almost tingled the nose and mouth. Not hop bitter but flavor and aroma hops kill! INtense citrus and light pine flavors dominate with a dry to semi sweet malt sweetness that is just right. On tap the beer has more to of the hop mouth zest but the but the bottle is almost equal in hop intesity. A bit a a metallic aftertaste that kept this one from scoring higher.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 22 OZ. bottle, poured a clear copper color with beige head. Cirtus and hop scent... Fresh tasting hoppy beer, with a lasting flavor of good bitterness. Very unique taste. Amazing IPA. Once again Three Floyds nailed it!
